HISTORY IN THE FORMAT OF THE CHAT -http://www.edutainme.ru/

Hooked is a platform on which you can read and compose interactive stories. In December 2016, Hooked took the first line in the App Store, and over the past six months, the app was downloaded by ten million people. The stories are written in the style of sms-correspondence between the characters. In 2016 came out a similar application Rapids from Amazon, in which you can follow the development of fascinating stories, reading the correspondence of the characters. Each of the hundreds of interactive books collected in the project library is a collection of letters of heroes to each other.

EXPRESSIVE READING AND POETIC MEMES - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/the-poetry-hour/id531395909?mt=8

In the application The Poetry Hour you can read poems, enjoy the performance of famous actors and even create poetic memes. The collection includes more than a hundred texts written by sixteen great poets - Lord Byron, Emily Dickinson, Thomas C. Eliot, John Milton and others. You can turn on audio or video and listen to reading famous actors. Also in the application there is a designer of memes: you just need to choose a beautiful picture and a quote. The developer of the application is the Josephine Hart Foundation for Poetry: by the way, she wrote the introductory articles for each author.

CHOICE OF THE BOOK ON A RANDOM PASSAGE - https://nocover.ru/

Sometimes the impression of an entire book can be made up even on one page. The NoCover project offers random excerpts and helps to choose a reading for the soul. The service is extremely simple: NoCover shows pages from different works without mentioning names and authors. If you liked the fragment, you can find out what kind of book it is and where to find it. If not, the service will go to another passage. The aim of the project is to make the choice of literature as free as possible. The reader can make a personal opinion about the texts, without looking at the covers, big names, recommendations or reviews.
